“[Confirmation] unites us more firmly to Christ, It strengthens our relationship with the Church, and it gives us a special strength from the Holy Spirit to defend the faith and confess the name of Christ.” (Pope Francis, Jan 29, 2014)
This sacrament is celebrated annually in the spring at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester. Our diocese now follows a two-year process. Anyone 8th grade and up can begin the process. Preparation is separate from the regular faith formation sessions. A candidate must be baptized, have faith knowledge in an age appropriate manner, a desire to celebrate the sacrament, and a commitment to continue formation and participation in the worship life in the community. Please call our parish office for more information at (315)331-6753.
